What is Dash & Splash?

Dash and Splash is a 5 kilometer dash along the beach of Sandown Bay!

This beautiful area has the largest bay on the island which, at low tide, offers a unique run along the hard sand. The run starts at the old Shanklin pier head, and dashes along the beach, under Sandown pier, to finish at Yaverland opposite the Yacht Club.

Dash and Splash is a fun run and not a race!
